.8% in september, a drop of 0.3% from august. the numbers appear good on the surface, but just too good for jack welch, a former ceo of general electric tweeted this. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. well, welch later came on cnn's a360 and said if he had that tweet to do all over again he would have added one thing. >> so many politicians these days are saying like michele bachmann will say something that factually is not correct or provable and then we'll say look, i'm asking the question. is it responsible to say i'm asking the question but to say the chicago guys will do anything, oh, i'm just asking the question. >> should have put the question mark at the end like i did last night. a question mark would have been better at the back of that. >> okay. so you are kind of backing away. >> i'm not backing away. i'm not backing away. >> you wish you would amend your tweet. >> wish i had a question mark at the back of it. the same implication. >> but to say something like this is like donald trump saying that president obama is not an

for mitt romney. john, thanks very much. jack cafferty has his own take on last night's presidential debate. he's here with the cafferty file, jack. >> if president obama had been a broadway show last night, it would have closed after one performance. even the president's staunch supporters were baffled by president obama's lackluster effort. "what was he doing?" james carville," romney came in with a chain saw." and andrew sullivan, "he choked, he may have even lost the election tonight." a margin of almost three to one they thought mitt romney won the first debate. 67% to 25%. what happened to the mesmerizing president who captivated audiences in berlin and cairo more than three years ago? where was the visionary who saw a path for this country that was so compelling he became the first african-american president in our history? watching the debate last night i got the impression president obama didn't even want to be there. he seemed annoyed at times and disengaged. and he allowed mitt romney back in the race big time. when the debates now shift to foreign policy, it's not likely to get
-romney presidential contest still have in store for us? jack cafferty's following that in the cafferty file. >> wolf, if it's october and presidential election year, then it's about time if a so-called october surprise. which means any late-breaking event that can suddenly change the outcome of the race, for example 12 days before the 1972 presidential election henry kissen jer made a major announcement about the vietnam war saying "we believe peace is athand." this likely helped the incumbent richard nixon go onto win every state except massachusetts. the most famous october surprise was one that never happened. in 1980 republicans were worried then-president jimmy carter would be boosted in his re-election bid by either a rescue or release of the american hostages in iran. that didn't happen. and ronald reagan won that election in a landslide. more recently osama bin laden released a video four days before the 2004 election, remember? that reminder of the 9/11 attacks probably helped george w. bush win a second term. 2008 the financial meltdown technically that started in september with the collap
